Multiline tiled watermarks can be tiled and repeated across an image or document, giving a more robust and visible watermark to provide a level of copyright protection.

PDF Conversion SDK is now available in PDF SDK desktop as an add-on
This means a developer can download PDF SDK and get to work immediately without having to write the code from scratch.
Multi-platform App UI (MAUI) project now available in desktop SDK packages, NuGet package and GitHub repository
This is a cross-platform app for displaying PDF contents on multiple devices and platforms such Windows, Mac, Android and iOS.
We now offer mixed raster content (MRC), a technique for compressing image objects
In our testing, we found a significant improvement versus alternative compression methods and achieved a reduction of the original document size by up to 99% in some cases while also retaining image quality.

This offers powerful PDF page editing capabilities allowing users to easily manipulate text blocks with font styles, alignment, and join/split functionality, perform text search and replace operations, and create and customize shape objects with preset paths, shading, and other properties.
